A Brother Abroad

I recently asked my brother what the best part of his day is. He responded:

"Talking to kids on thewebcam....young servicemen and women don't know this but 15-20 years ago, I would go on deployment and it could be almost a week between phone calls or letters. When the ship pulled in, that was it: mail call and stand in line to get access to the AT&T phones. Of course, that is a double edged sword, servicemen will now expect this level of service all the time. That will not be the norm. But I like it."

This is Day 24.
